- Accepting New Patients:
- Danette has been with Samaritan since 1991, starting in the Emergency Department as a nurse and moving to primary care as a family nurse practitioner in 2005. Her experience has motivated her to adopt an integrative and functional medicine approach to patient care. She is currently training in functional medicine.
She works with each patient to determine the root causes of illness, provide holistic treatment and help them strive towards whole-body wellness.
In her free time she enjoys hiking in the Pacific Northwest, backpacking, running and spending time with her son.
Danette had a student with her and as she explained things to me she did a wonderful job of explaining to the student as well.
Ms. Nelson is the most respectful, most thorough, and most competent care provider I have ever had and I am in my 70's--so I have had many experiences with providers
Danette has always been very good to me.
I always feel taken care of with my care provider.
